I guess I am like most others. With me I carry 2 elastic bands for the 'all great' CMH.

Plus 4 coins, dime and penny (non-gimmicked), a regular deck of cards, and a Brain Wave deck. Also a ****ing quarter, and Scotch and Soda (non-gimmicked).

Then in the regular pack I have a gimmicked packet for a 3-Card Monte.

When I'm out, I almost always carry an Invisible Deck, a standard deck, Hopping Halves, T.T. & silk.

I can do quite a bit with that! Smile

Man you guys are prepared. But I wonder if some of you carry a backpack. There are a lot of tricks being carried around here, or maybe for us techno peasant magicians it just sounds like alot.

Having been out of magic for a while this just seems a bit overwhelming— impressive, but still, overwhelming to me.

When people ask me to do something impromptu, I usually do the linking fingers trick. That's the beauty of comedy magic. Cheap props that take up nearly no extra space.

I carry a ****ing half and matching regular half. Eternal string and quadroflex bill.

I can do quite a bit of magic with just a few props. The coin alone gives me an endless supply of possibilities.

The eternal string really gets them. For quadroflex I borrow a one dollar bill and use John Lovitz's bill switch to perform it.

All props are readily available items that most people can relate to so they don't think that it's all a set up.

Keep it simple, I don't walk out the door expecting to perform a full show, just enough to let them know that I am a magician.

Keep them wanting more!

Just deck of cards and some Euros in my wallet.

I forgot to mention that my normal wallet is BKM wallet so I can do card to wallet anytime.

A piece of string or shoelace, used for Hunter's Knot. Robert Neal's closeup version.

I carry a deck of ungaffed cards and a Hot Rod. That's it. Occasionally B'wave in my regular wallet.

I carry lots of effects and do different things.

I carry:
  • Ungimmicked cards
  • Ebony & Ivory
  • I want to add hypno bill
  • Ring leader
  • Hot Chocolate
  • The light and heavy dime (when presented as a "make shift trick" this is one of the strongest pieces of magic in the world).
  • Kollase Killer
  • and sometimes By Choice and By change

There you go.

My pockets are usually loaded, but the funny thing is that I rarely use any of these items in an impromptu situation more than a couple times a year. Furthermore, I'm more and more likely to do something in mentalism that doesn't require any of them. On the other hand, I'm equipped for about any age and any degree of silliness or seriousness.

That being said, here's an inventory of what's on me right now:

LEFT PANTS POCKET: Hopping Halfs and the ungimmicked half of a pair of color changing knives.

RIGHT PANTS POCKET: The gimmicked color-changing knife.

RIGHT COIN POCKET: Two half dollars and four quarters (mostly for practicing my crappy classic palm while waiting in lines).

LEFT REAR POCKET: My checkbook containing some business cards, one with a "cheat sheet" for doing A Swindle of Sorts.

RIGHT REAR POCKET: My wallet, containing B'Wave.

LEFT VEST POCKET: EM Pocket Charger.

RIGHT VEST POCKET: Hot Rod, Steel Ball & Tube, Haunted Key.

SHIRT POCKET: SUC II, which I use as my daily card case anyway.

INSIDE VEST POCKET: A paper bag and plastic stones for Kurotsuke (I don't always carry that around...I just have been forgetting to take it out of my pocket).

Nothing more than my hands, my people skills and my imagination.

With these I can work miracles.

Take it easy.

A deck of cards, bent penny and coin on forehead. OK, those who know—they know what I mean.
